First song I learned on the guitar was Eric Claptons tears in heaven. My dad being in a band for 25 years made me learn that song before I even learned what chords were. 6 days of trying to get it I finally nailed it, another week to get my voice in tune and I was playing it like I had been doing it for years. Nice one. And I must admit looking back I have cried to this song too. Love the post, keep it up.

[color=9F60FC]Mother Love Bone ~ 'Man Of Golden Words'


[color=CFECEC]i want to show you something like joy inside my heart
Seems I been living in [color=9F60FC]the temple of the dog
[color=CFECEC]Where would i live if I were a man of golden words. or would I live at all

[color=9F60FC]Words and Music - my only tools... communication


[color=CFECEC]and on her arrival I will set free the birds
Its a pretty time of year, when the mountains sing aloud
Tell me Mr golden words hows bout the world. Tell me, can you tell me at all

[color=9F60FC]Words and Music - my only tools..... Communication

[color=CFECEC]Lets fall in love with music. The driving force of our living
The only international language. Divine glory, the expression
The knees bow. The tongue confesses.
The lord of lords, the king of kings

[color=9F60FC]Words and Music - My only tools. Communication








 
 


[color=9F60FC]Mother Love Bone ~ 'Chloe Dancer/Crown Of Thorns'

[color=CFECEC]Chloe don't know better... Chloe's just like me, only beautiful
A couple of years difference, but those lessons never learned.

Did you know? Chloe danced the tables in the French Quarter
She's always been given, so I can't always make her laugh
But I'm proud to say and I won't forget
The time spent laying by her side, oh yeah, yeah
The time spent laying by her side, oh yeah, yeah
Dreams like this must die
And a dream like this must die... Dream like this must....




[color=CFECEC]You ever heard the story of Mr. Faded Glory?
Say he who rides a pony must someday fall
Talkin' to my alter, life is what you make it
And if you make it death, then rest your soul away, away, away, yeah child

It's a broken kind of feeling. She'd have to tie me to the ceiling
A bad moon's a comin,' better say your prayers, child
I wanna tell you that I love you. but does it really matter?
I just can't stand to see you dragging down again, again, my baby again, oh yeah


So I'm singing, and this is my kinda love. It's the kind that moves on
It's the kind that leaves me alone, yes it does
And this is my kinda love. It's the kind that moves on
It's the kind that leaves me alone

I used to treat you like a lady. Now you're a substitute teacher
This bottle's not a pretty, not a pretty sight, yeah
I owe the man some money. So I'm turnin over honey
See Mr. Faded Glory is once again doin' time, oh yeah
Like a crown of thorns... It's all who you know, yeah






 
 


[color=9F60FC]Temple Of The Dog ~ 'Say Hello To Heaven'


[color=CFECEC]Please, mother mercy, take me from this place
And the long winded curses I hear in my head
Words never listen, and teachers never learn
Now I'm warm from the candle, but I feel too cold to burn

He came from an island, and he died from the street
He hurt so bad like a soul breaking,
but he never said nothing to me.... So say hello to heaven

Poor stargazer, she's got no tears in her eyes
Smooth like whisper, she knows that love heals all wounds with time



[color=CFECEC]Now it seems like too much love, is never enough.
You better seek out another road,'cause this one has ended abrupt
Say hello to heaven

I never wanted, to write these words down for you
With the pages of phrases, of things we'll never do
So I blow out the candle, and I put you to bed
Since you can't say to me now, how the dogs broke your bone
There's just one thing left to be said.... Say hello to heaven





 

 
P.S. Malfunctions in thy brain + Malfunctions in thy computer = this & that

 
 



To Be Continued........

It was January, 1963
When Johnny came home with a gift for me
He said I bought it for you because I love you
And I bought it for you because it's your birthday, too
He was so very nice, he was so very kind
To think of me at this point in time
I used to think of him, he used think of me
He told me to close my eyes
My gift would be a great surprise
I saw tears were in his eyes
He never meant to hurt me
Oh, God, Johnny, don't point that gun at me
There's so many ways our lives have changed
But please, I beg, don't do this to me
Johnny, don't point that gun at me
Can I save my life at any price?
For God's sake won't you listen to me?

And though he was ashamed that he had took a life
Johnny came home with another wife
And he often remembered how it used to be
Before that special occasion, 1963
There was too many ways that you could kill someone
Like in a love affair, when the love is gone
He told me to close my eyes
My gift would be a great surprise
I saw hatred in his eyes
He never meant to hurt me
Oh, God, Johnny, don't point that gun at me
There's so many ways our lives have changed
But please, I beg, don't do this to me
Johnny, you keep on using me
Can I change my life for any price?
Oh, Johnny, won't you listen to me?

He told me to close my eyes
My gift would be a great surprise
I saw hatred in his eyes
But he never meant to hurt me
Oh, God, Johnny, don't point that gun at me
There's so many ways our lives have changed
But please, I beg, don't do this to me
Johnny, you keep on using me
Can I change my life for any price?
Oh, Johnny, won't you listen to me?

I just want you to be mine,
I don't want this world to shine
I don't want this bridge to burn
Oh, Johnny, do you miss me?
I just want to feel for you
I will always feel for you...

Billy don't be a hero, don't be a fool with your life
Billy don't be a hero, come back and make me your wife
and as he started to go... she said Billy keep your head low..
Billy don't be a hero, come back to me.


I heard his fiance got a letter... that told how Billy died that day

the letter said that he was a hero

she should be proud he died that way



I heard she threw the letter away.

best fan video I could find - even the live versions (though sung great) had horrible effects - the evil laugh is not part of the song

If I was beautiful like you, oh the things I would do
those not so blessed, would be crying out murder
and I'd just laugh, and get away with it too...

Like you do.

If I was beautiful like you, I would never be at fault
I'd walk in the rain between the raindrops
bringing traffic to a hault

But that will never, that will n-never be
cause I'm not beautiful like you

I'd beautiful like me.

[color=00FFFF]Alice In Chains ~ 'No Excuses'

[color=CFECEC]It's alright. There comes a time. got no patience to search for peace of mind
Layin' low. Want to take it slow. No more hiding or disguising truths I've sold
Everyday it's something hits me all so cold.
You find me sittin' by myself. No excuses that I know



[color=CFECEC]It's okay had a bad day. Hands are bruised from breaking rocks all day
Drained and blue I bleed for you. You think it's funny, well you're drowning in it too
Yeah, it's fine. We'll walk down the line. leave our rain, a cold trade for warm sunshine
You my friend, I will defend, And if we change, well I love you anyway



 
 



[color=00FFFF]Alice In Chains ~ 'Am I Inside'


[color=CFECEC]Loneliness it shadows me, quicker than darkness
Crawls to the surface of my skin, visibly surrounded by it
[color=9AFEFF]Black is all I feel, so this is how it feels to be free

[color=CFECEC]Surrounded by empty souls, artificial courage used
And because so, once was mine. I walk this maze alone
[color=9AFEFF]Black is all I feel, so this is how it feels to be free

[color=CFECEC]The man's beside himself, man's below himself
Man's behind himself, Am I inside myself


[color=CFECEC]Chaos and hate shadow me, pain it fills me up
Only one thing makes me feel, missing better half of me
[color=9AFEFF]Black is all I feel, so this is how it feels to be free
Black is all I feel, so this is how it feels to be free

 
 



[color=00FFFF]Mad Season ~ 'Wake Up'

[color=CFECEC]Wake up young man, it's time to wake up. Your love affair has got to go.
For 10 long years, for 10 long years. The leaves to rake up
Slow suicide's no way to go, oh... Blue, clouded grey
You're not a crack up. Dizzy and weakened by the haze
Moving onward. so an infection not a phase




[color=CFECEC]The cracks and lines from where you gave up. They make an easy man to read
For all the times you let them bleed you. For little peace from God you plead, and beg
Slow suicide's no way to go, oh..... Slow suicide's no way to go
Wake up, wake up, wake up...... Wake up, wake up, wake up


[color=250517]'Mad Season' was a sort of super-group in Seattle during the early 90's.
2 of the members were Layne Staley of Alice In Chains, and Mike McCready of Pearl Jam.


 
 



[color=00FFFF]Alice In Chains - 'Down In A Hole'


[color=CFECEC]Bury me softly in this womb...... I give this part of me for you
Sand rains down and here I sit.... Holding rare flowers In a tomb...in bloom

Down in a hole and I don't know if I can be saved
See my heart I decorate it like a grave
You don't understand who they thought I was supposed to be
Look at me now, a man who wont let himself be

Down in a hole, feeling so small.... Down in a hole, losing my soul
I'd like to fly, But my wings have been so denied


[color=CFECEC]Down in a hole and they've put all the stones in their place
I've eaten the sun so my tongue has been burned of the taste
I have been guilty of kicking myself in the teeth
I will speak no more of my feelings beneath

Surprised this hasn't been posted, though I have seen a few Radiohead's... This is a special song and I can only listen to it if I am in a mood to cry.

How To Disappear Completely - Radiohead




Not sure why but this one gets me by at least the second verse..

Ballad Of Curtis Lowe - Lynard Skynard



Also, I'm thinking anything by Elliott Smith will get you in that mood, or at least close to it.

[color=3BB0FF]Black Sabbath - 'Changes'


[color=9AFEFF]I feel unhappy.I feel so sad
I lost the best friend, that I ever had
She was my woman. I loved her so
But it's too late now. I've let her go

I'm going through changes... I'm going through changes



[color=9AFEFF]We shared the years. We shared each day
In love together, we found a way
But soon the world had its evil way
My heart was blinded. Love went astray

It took so long, to realize
That I can still hear her last goodbyes
Now all my days, are filled with tears
Wish I could go back, and change these years


 
 
 




[color=3BB9FF]Smashing Pumpkins - 'Landslide'
[color=1589FF]A beautiful cover of this song. Originally written by Stevie Nicks


[color=9AFEFF]I took my love and took it down.... I climbed a mountain, I turned around
And I saw my reflection in a snow covered hill... 'til a landslide brought it down



[color=9AFEFF]Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?... Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides?.... Can I handle the seasons of my life?

Well, I've been afraid of changing cause I've,, Built my life around you
Time makes you bolder, even children get older
And I'm getting older, too.. I'm getting older, too.

Hope the link works, I've never done a Youtube link before.

ok...I just found this most spectacular thread! I have to say some awesome songs on this list. Here are my contributions.


This song is so sweet and sad at the same time.


I can just put this song on repeat and listen to it for hours. It's not necessarily a "sad" song, but it brings out a lot of emotion.


Kinda the same deal here as with Mayonnaise.


This is off one of my Top 5 albums of all time. Funny thing is a perfect circle did a cover of this song on 13th Steps.


And this just because it's a great song. Tragic death...eerily similar to how his dad died too.

Enjoy everyone. Great thread!!!

You have most likely seen and/or heard at least one of these(or maybe all). If not, then I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.





[color=EAC117]Fool enough to almost be it.. Cool enough to not quite see it... Doomed
Pick your pockets full of sorrow... And run away with me tomorrow.... June
We'll try and ease the pain.... Somehow we'll feel the same
Well, no one knows.... Where our secrets go

I send a heart to all my dearies... When your life is so, so dreary... Dream
I'm rumored to the straight and narrow.... While the harlots of my perils... Scream
And I fail... But when I can, I will.... Try to understand... That when I can, I will

Mother weep the years I'm missing... All our time can't be given back
Shut my mouth and strike the demons... That cursed you and your reasons
Out of hand and out of season... Out of love and out of feeling... So bad
When I can, I will... Words defy the plan.... When I can, I will

Fool enough to almost be it... And cool enough to not quite see it
And old enough to always feel this... Always old, I'll always feel this
No more promise no more sorrow... No longer will I follow

[color=FFFF00]Can anybody hear me.... I just want to be me
[color=EAC117]When I can, I will... Try to understand.... That when I can, I will


[color=FFFF00]'Mayonaise' (Acoustic, Live, & Public)

[color=AF7817]Originally on the 'Vieuphoria' video.

I'm thinking that they may have been at a Zoo, during this↑ performance, but I am not positive about that. Just the raw, care-free vibe of it, is such a beautiful thing. Back in the early days, before the personal issues became too much. It is obvious that these were 4 close friends, who are having a good time. I miss those days.





 
 
 



[color=3BB9FF]'Orestes' (Demo)
[color=1589FF]Billy Howerdel's Original Acoustic Demo (Without MJK)
Was released on the 'Judith' Single.


[color=82CAFF]metaphor for a missing moment.... Pull me in to your perfect circle
one womb...one shame...one resolve...... liberate this will.. to release us all

gotta cut away, clear away, snip away, and sever this
umbilical residue, keeping me from killing you
and from pulling you down with me, in here
i can almost hear you scream

[color=3BB9FF]one more medicated peaceful moment
Give me one more medicated peaceful moment
and i don't wanna feel this overwhelming.. hostility
I don't wanna feel this overwhelming.. hostility




 
 

[color=1589FF]Another version of 'Orestes,' that was performed live.
[color=3BB9FF]'Orestes'- Alternate intro lyrics/extended guitar solo (3-01-01, NY)


[color=82CAFF]Picture a parachute, a playground
Innocent faces in a circle
Tiny hands hold round the edges
A thread for every gentle moment
and they lift my heart high above their heads
on this billowing diaphragm of memories
and i struggle to catch a glimpse of you
but I'm bound by webs of habit

When I first came across this live version, I searched for lyrics. I basically just used bits and pieces from different sites, and changed a few words myself. It is definitely a possibility that I got some of them wrong, but I believe that my version is more accurate, than any of the others I found.



 
 
 
P.S.- You may find a thing or two in this↓↓ thread, that you will enjoy.
Maynard James Keenan

Page 4 song list & the links to the other lists, for pages 1, 2, & 3. I got lazy, but still need to make a list for page 5, and/or 1 big list of all songs on all 5 pages.

BC is a monster!! great music man!


I know I've been slacking, my apologies, but many many thanks to everyones contributions. Some incredible music included, some new music for me to listen to.


Stars for everyone, and I wish I could give double to the person who reminded me of this song (I forget your name, but you know who you are)

They just don't make music like that anymore. Not that there's anything wrong with contemporary music, I love many new artists.... but Lynyrd Skynyrd..... just breathtaking
